General Information for Participants
All participants themselves are responsible to go through the review process and decision tree information available on the site and ensure which category their research qualifies for whether new protocol, exemption or expedited review. To submit the form, PI/Supervisor and researcher are responsible to check the submission dates which will be updated on IHEC home page and submit the form timely. No personal requests shall be entertained.
The IHEC will meet at least once in two months/twice every semester, or more if required, to review all the applications including proposals for researchers; also including research proposals submitted by the faculty involving human subjects for any kind of data. The internal members of the committee will screen the proposals before they are circulated to the external members. Research requiring IHEC approval must submit their applications to firstname.lastname@example.org . Before preparing your application, please read through the ‘Review process’ and go through the decision tree to assess whether IHEC review is required, if so, how to complete the IHEC application along with additional documents required.
Please see the home page for last date of submission of applications for IHEC review and meetings.
Once the IHEC is satisfied that the study is in no way harmful to the subjects under study, the committee will issue an Ethical Clearance Certificate, valid for the period of study specified. The committee will also advise the researcher about the "informed consent" to be obtained from the subjects, and "confidentiality" to be maintained vis-a-vis subjects.
